Editorial Reviews


"An especially timely book in its constant emphasis on the deep connection between the ethical/political and the metaphysical/epistemological spheres of philosophy and indeed 'real life.'"
Radical Philosophy Review of Books

"There is absolutely no doubt that this book is a very useful addition to the corpus of work in Afro American—indeed, in American—philosophy. Locke's unpublished work on the question of value reveals a good deal about the ways in which American philosophers approached questions of value in the mid-century, before logical positivism had had its major impact on American thought; and his contributions to the issue of cultural pluralism are historically important and still influential."
Anthony Appiah, Cornell University

"A challenging book. It forces the reader to cross interdisciplinary boundaries that are not often transgressed."

--This text refers to the Paperback edition.
